Putting all the bluster aside, I don't know how the Wings whiffed so badly on this one. Highest draft pick of any guy on the Wings now (as far as Wings' own picks). Doesn't make sense.
I think he's servicable, but that's it. It's hard to be more than servicable when you not PP or PK at a high level. Also, he's not nearly as good a skater as some posters make him out to be. He's mobile but that's almost a given in this day and age to play in the NHL. In comparison to someone like Smith his skating ability fades.
As far as draft pick goes, win some lose some I guess. The guys taken around him are not exactly world beaters today either.
